Sara Ella

I am a daughter of the King, adoring wife, homeschooling mother of two, eager reader, and hopeful novelist. I love all things to do with coffee and books, especially when the two are paired. I love to encourage my sisters in Christ and am saved "by grace alone".

My writing has been published in Shine Brightly magazine and Thriving Family magazine. One day, I hope to have my first novel finished (If I can ever get a moment to myself..haha). It is my dream to reach others for Christ through my writing.

I review books for Bethany House, Thomas Nelson and Zondervan (via BookSneeze), LitFuse, and Tyndale. I am also a part of the Tommy Nelson Mommy program.
